6gb 1060 is a beast, as long as the rest of the pc is up to par you'll be ok. I would feel a 1070 would future proof you a bit longer though.

gtx 970, super popular card here among the peasants.


970 will not do 1440p 60fps on max settings not even close...

980ti or 1070 minimum for 1440p.
1080/1080ti for 1440p/144hz and 4k/60fps.
7700K@5.0 - 1080 - EVGA 750 - 16GB DDR4 - Z270 ASUS
H100v2 - Evolv ATX - 500GB SAMSUNG SSD - 1TB WD BLACK

none.

some games will dip way under 60 with maxed settings, no matter the hardware.
If brute force doesn't fix the problem, you're not using enough of it.

Yup, when the games are unoptimized. Have a few like that. However ones that are well optimized, I can see typically about 100fps.

Geez some of these cards are coming in at a grand :/

Yea, the recent cryptomining hype has driven-up the GPU prices like crazy.

You might be fine with the higher end ones and can avoid the scalping. Although its weird that the 1080 TI is supposely being scalped, but that isn't because of mining just people wanting the card. 1060 6GB, 1070s (1070 TI?), and a lot of the AMD GPU's are the ones miners go for. So 1080 and up to avoid the miners.

Cryptos are going through a correction now and dropped 40% overnight. Might be a good window the next couple weeks to find a decently priced card before the Cryptos surge again
